Change is the new constant in leadership of the 21st century. Never before in history have the opportunities of creating new business value been so easily reachable for organizations – and so elusive at the same time. Digital technology offers speed and scalability to drive successful innovation and adaptivity on the one hand – and represents one of the most important leadership challenges on the other. Leaders are charged with navigating the dynamic complexity of a new era, which more than ever requires a holistic perspective.
Digital Transformation is not just located in your IT department – it is a cultural revolution that reaches all parts of your organization: your internal infrastructure, your relationships to partners and clients as well as your product and service portfolio. Successful Digital Transformation requires a human-driven strategy, a creative view on technological potential and a hands-on entrepreneurial mindset.
Leading successfully through the digital evolution: The Stanford Center for Professional Development and the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) offer this intensive executive program that merges three key transformational factors: Human Needs, Digital Technology and Business Transformation Management.
You will discover a holistic, step-by-step approach to New Leadership, which encompasses three types of value creation:
